Well, I have another octo, I asked for a small one and the LFS derived. Its head is about the size of a thumb and the tentacles are about five inches in length. It has two blue spots on each side of its head. I put in the larger tank with my spiny and Valentini puffers, naso tang and the frogfish. The puffers both took a quick look the octo changed a few colors and the puffers went about there business. Well, any advice with feeding the little guy would be great or what species he might be.

Hey! Congrats!

I'm jealous! :wink: Where do you live? I've been calling That Fish Place, in Pa and so far no luck! You know, Hermin died about 3 weeks ago!

Anyway, just a thought - Are puffers safe to keep with him? I know they have massive teeth!

Good luck with him!!!

I don’t have any picks yet, I live in Vegas and I use this one place here were I am good friends with the owners and they can order anything under the condition of it not being deadly. It took her about two weeks because at first who she was ordering from only had giant pacific which were both very $$$ and very big. I told her to tell em nothing over a foot in length and I want a juvenile if possible and they delivered. As a matter of fact I was worried it was one of the standoffish dwarfs but last night he was eating and just watching me for about an hour out of the rock so all is well.

Yah the larger puffer tried to have a bit of a show down with the octo which raised itself up and tried to scare the puffer... it worked. But I already removed them from the tank just to be on the safe side and the octo is having blast going through the tank. frankly I am hoping hes not a bimac but who knows hes allot more friendly that the last one and even waying less that two ounces will come up and check you out. I am keeping the frog fish in the tank with the little guy but only because the octo seems to have taken an intrest in him and frog seems not to care.

Yup, I was totally joking with you there. I'm planning on getting a bimac in a couple weeks and I was just kidding about you sending me yours for free if it turned out to be one.
